I enjoy the bending lights following the road turns in the dark on my 2017 SX.
My wife is thinking of buying the 2020 SX but I heard the "Bending Light" feature is gone now- Is that true ?
Are there any other features that have been dropped since the 2017 SX ?

My Wife's 2020 doesn't have that. She love's the car though. Do you really think your wife would care ?

The bend lighting feature was only available with the HID lights. Those have been replaced on the 2020 SX with LEDs and the bend lighting was not included.

When you turn your steering wheel the headlights follow. Nice feature on dark country roads. Our 2019 SX Turbo Sportage has this feature. I like it!

My 2020 SX has them -- bi-xenon headlights with dynamic bending lights.

I like this feature as it only adds to the 'edginess' of the KIA in general and actually is useful. Maybe not so much in most driving but think about negotiating a twisty country lane at night - its 'seeing around corners' in real-time.

It is a feature I have come to rely on.
The area I drive has lots turns plus wildlife, the swiveling headlights add a margin of safety for me and the critters.
Now if only the A-pillars didn't create such huge blind spots
